My wife and I got a brand new baby Persian cat today, which I've been wanting for a long time (We named her Amelie, after the fine recent French film). So, we get her home, and my wife says, "I guess we'll wait for a while to go to South Bend." Ack! We were going to stop by Indiana Beach for a ride session on the way back from visiting The Woodwind and Brasswind (music store).

So now I will have to wait another year to visit IB. I don't want to leave a baby cat with anyone else until it gets used to us first. Oh well, I suppose that it gives me something to look forward to for the 2003 season.

I'm not really sure that my post has a point, I just wanted to share this story with somebody who might understand. :) Happy coastering!

Two words: Pet hotel!

I was a Music Major in college and purchased my tuba at the Brasswind, and I live in California. Unbelievable store! When you are making a $6,000 purchase, it's worth it to where you have that kind of selection.

You're lucky, Soggy. I wish my instrument was even close to being that cheap! But, it is my job....(it could have also been a small house!)

Mark: Sorry, man. I didn't get to IB this year either. But, sounds like a good reason to not go. Have fun with the cat...they don't stay that small and cute for long :)

Hey maybe the LoCoSuMo line will be shorter next year.

You can hear the laughter, you can hear the mighty roar. From the brickyard down in Indy to the white Chicago shore. It's a rollin', twistin', turnin' and might we both suggest. You get you fanny ridin' on the Cornball Express!

I love Woodwind & Brasswind! My high school was 1/2 hour from there, so needless to say I got all my percussion stuff there. They are a great group. I need to pay them a visit when I visit the area. Perhaps for an Irish home game....:)

Sorry about your luck with IB. It will be worth the wait, and hopefully LoCo will have some of the "kinks" worked out by next year! Out of control is an understatement. Enjoy the new pet!

MWB, the time bonding with your kitten is something that will bring you joy every day for years to come...IB will be there next year...once she grows up, you just become a servant that opens doors and deposits food in the bowl anyway...;)

Arrow Guy, I don't know WHAT to say about the ND comment....ever since Jerome Bettis wrestled the Gators to the ground in the Big Easy, I have no team that I dislike more...until halftime, everything was a Nawlins-style cocktail party...after halftime, the rest of the trip was more like a Nawlins-style hangover...that being said, the Ty Willingham hire was a stroke of genius, and will pay huge rewards...(like Homey G. said, once coaster season ends, it's all college football)....now if only I could figure out what a "coaster season" is...;)

Trust, me your cat needs you right now! In the future you can just leave the little fella at home with food and water for a couple of days. Just make sure to keep the litter box clean or else it will really start to reek.

Awww, someone choosing their kitty over a park. Sounds like me and my daughter Talia. She is now old enough and litter trained for me to leave her alone.

My cat is always nicer to me when I leave him for a few days alone. I guess he realizes how much he needs me...

He let the contents of the bottle do the thinking; can't shake the devil's hand and say you're only kidding.

I had to postpone a amusement park trip last summer because my cat (who had not been feeling well) ran away from home. We found him a week later and quite a distance from home too.

The park trip still took place a few weeks later and the cat is doing fine!

-----------------
I started out with nothing and still have most of it left.
